This is the ideal class for teens who are serious about developing their own unique style in their artwork. Students will have the option to work with acrylic painting, watercolor, charcoal, pen and ink, or mixed media as they work to explore their own artistic vision. Students will work at their own pace in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. We will create up to two pieces using a detailed process that will include composition studies, shooting and or finding reference photos, creating a detailed line drawing of our subject, and color studies prior to beginning the finished piece. We will address many drawing and painting techniques such as color usage and mixing, shading and value, brushwork and application, and other basic elements and principles of design. Our first class will be dedicated to media exploration and concept development. Includes all supplies.
